developments around the world and will keep you up to date. thank you for being with us tonight. make sure you go to gretawire.com. let us know who you thought about this special edition of "on the record". keep it here on fox news channel. good night. ♪ >> hello, everyone, i'm dana perino, along with kimberly guilfoyle, brian beckel, brian kilmeade, this is five fithe five. >> we hope you had a happy thanksgiving, today a black friday, the unofficial kickoff of the shopping season. and republicans had time to digest what happened and trying to figure out exactly what went wrong and i love this quote from haley barber, says we've got to give our political organizations a very
11:01pm
serious probablictology exam. >> it appears to me that 3 million fewer votes were cast for mitt romney than for john mccain, it tells the party is splintered, it doesn't know if it's down ride conservative or the middle establishment or we really, they really need to find this, and remember this, that the tea party was born april 15th, 2009 on the heels of taxed enough already. every time you would talk to a tea party representative or person, any one of the groups and ask them, taxes, i get. what about social issues, what about contraceptive. they didn't want it talk about it. they want toed to talk about
11:02pm
the social issues and somehow the democrats attached the social issues to the tea party. >> and bob, you have familiarity with that. >> what the heck. >> not obviously republican and democrats have shared losses over time and it's normal, right, for a party to go through a little self-examination and figure out where they're doing. >> and the impression-- i think one of the-- one lesson the republicans had on a serious note you have to do more than run against somebody. the focus of that campaign and the republicans generally was to vote against barack obama and dependent on the turnout against president obama and you need the policies and a lot of talk about the hispanic issue and you can't give away that many hispanic votes and you know you can get them and even mccain did better, but, unless the republican party's willing to accept some reform of immigration laws, i think they're bound not-- >> and let's listen to mark
11:03pm
levin who has this to say and i'll get kimberly and brian in here. >> we conservatives, we do not accept bipartisanship in the pursuit of tyranny, period. we will not negotiate the con servitude, we're the alternative, we will resist. we're not going to surrender to this. we will not be passive, we will not be compliant in our own demise, we're he not good losers. you better believe we're sore losers. a good loser is a loser forever. >> so that's one perspective and listen to peggy noonan who has a different thought. >> oh, i'm sorry, i have to read the quote, excuse me. i thought we had-- that's because i love listening to peggy, but i'm going to read it for her. hopefully i'll be able to rise to the occasion. >> she says what it needed is mag nimty.
11:04pm
not about him, his party, about self and one's deepest, and suggest in subtle ways to help them save face and quietly that you're not the best negotiator and neither were they. the nation faces a real challenge and there will be economic repercussions in handling this, kimberly, i think this is-- >> you like the levin approach? >> totally forget it. >> it sees much more clear. >> stand for something, and say, yeah, we lost, and examine it, how can we get this done better. they spent between the romney campaign, super pac, alludes to a president with a failed economy, horrible unemployment numbers and shouldn't have been that difficult. >> and the republicans do revert back and try and say that we should try to get everyone get along and that wasn't president obama's
11:05pm
approach. >> what i've learned from the results of this election is if i was somebody trying to get mitt romney elected tell the biography, this is one of the best biographies and resume's to return for president, i would have spent time even if it goes over a guy like mine's head, tell us about the companies and things you've done for people. and in the 30's, people were wondering you, how are you going to support four kids, and you found time to be a bishop in a church. and yes, the word mormon may have come up. >> and they broke the rule, you define yourself positively first, they allowed the obama people to define them for months, why they didn't put on the bio spot for me one of the greatest questions in politics. >> because the buyo spot. >> do you agree? >> absolutely right. and he has a great resume', but that's not what was going to win the election.
11:06pm
what was going to win the election is fix the problems. how? remember, it was 39 points and then 5 points. and honestly, i followed this up closely and still don't know what his plan was. that his resume' was fantastic. where he dropped the ball, he didn't-- how about this, and the plan-- >> never defended the plan, i did not. i took the other tactic, i said president obama failed and that's why you should vote for romney you don't want four more years of a failed policy and that's where i was. >> let me ask a question, how do you respond to mark levin, one of my good friends, too, like eric, he can be a little crazy. >> not crazy. but in his own way-- >> he's very focused and-- >> and i understand he's very smart. >> and i think that right out of the gate after the election there were opinion pieces that had ran from all across the republican spectrum with what went wrong and what we need to do and i'm just not so sure.
11:07pm
i think it's going to take time and if there's a messenger needs to emerge from the party and that person, i don't think we know who that is yet. but there's some time to figure it out. and after the 1992 loss, it fook a while to, for the republicans to get back in shape and that's, you know, it could take a little bit of time. and one of the things karl rove writes about in thewall wall street journal today. he said one of the things was to limit the number of debates in the primary and then, also hold the rnc convention earlier. those are two of the practical things. ran on november 14th in the wall street journal. what do you think about that. >> it's good advice. nobody sort of said who is this guy until that debate and so late in the process, and tearing each other down, and which didn't make anybody look good in terms of-- >> ann romney could not spend.
11:08pm
romney could not spend any money raised for the general election, until-- >> do you think that was, because that was perhaps money he could have spent on the bio. >> and color me crazy, and i'll take the crazy label, if i was worth 250 million dollars i understand you want to spend somebody else's money, but if you have a gap between may and july when you don't have any money i would go into my checking account. >> and make sure those bio spots got out and the answer-- >> i think you're right. and i am a firm believer in karl rove's understanding of politics, but for carl now, he needs to do some self-examination and he's wrong-- >> i think all of them are-- >> i hope so, and-- >> what do you think if american crossroads, the pact that karl rove ran, imagine that had not been in existence during that time. could romney have lost by more, actually romney did ost republicans
11:09pm
in those states. >> i remember leading up to mitt romney, by the way, levin and a the lot of us were saying, he well, not romney, maybe one of the more conservatives candidates and it was, it was him. i think they did a good job with what they could work with, no offense, mitt romney great guy, great bio, but he certainly want the best candidate we put up in a long time. >> that's what i was going to ask. >> who could you put up. >> there wasn't a lot to choose from, i think the upcoming republican group, rubio, even christy although i have a serious problem with him right now, he was good at the time before he found-- >> and forget there were a lot of people who couldn't fill that. and-- >> and scott walker. forget the primaries, who would you pick this time around, a republican nominee? >> at the time i liked rick perry, but he self-medicated himself out of that job and-- >> and newt, i don't know. >> and republicans as haley
11:10pm
barber said are doing self-examination, but it's probably smart, right, bob, for the democrats to do soul searching, too, because they will not have president obama running on the ticket four years from now, so, who do you think that the democrats are spending some time also thinking of where do we go from here. >> absolutely. and one, first of all, one of the democrats have with or without obama, demographic and the republicans simply can't win this demographic breakdown. >> latinos, minorities. >> i don't think it has to be that way. >> it doesn't have to be that way, but that requires policies, but democrats are coming up with, a big one going on obama who wants to strike a deal on the fiscal cliff and it's going to mean the left is not happy, and you guys have called him a socialist and all of this stuff, i'm telling you much more of a centrist than you think? >> obama? i think he's-- >> no, you're just so wrong about that. >> he's as far left, and he-- >> you talk about it.
11:11pm
>> and he's worse than carter, i think he's fuelly fairly pragmatic and probably will be more so at least while this fiscal crisis is. >> the biggest adjustment the democrats will make is running against george bush, the exit polls they were blaming gb, and i can't believe he might troo try to do it again and mentioned it in the press conference. and sooner or later, they'll have to say judge us on the last eight years with obama. they don't care. >> they care. >> and he feels like he has a man tate and can do what he wants and it's all about revenge, and warm and fuzzy campaign? >> he won, you lost and-- >> i don't know, i still feel like a winner because i know what we do to fix this economy and his ideas don't work. >> and negotiate a pragmatic deal on the fiscal cliff put yourself in a hole you won't get out. >> and what's the prague matism, prime minister is
11:12pm
claiming. >> 4-1 tax spending cuts. >> i haven't heard that. >> i think that's what he's going to come up with. >> and they go back to the clinton tax rates and it's not going to solve anything. and as if to say. >> the other part, you have to take out spending and entitlements, he didn't do it, i'll grant you that, didn't do it because he was trying to contact the base on the left and-- >> and no, no, i said to win the election. as a president he's going to govern, you watch much more centrist and if the republicans don't set the table, this'll look at whacko right wing. >> they have been at the table. >> my gut is he's going to be a centrist and they'll get a deal. >> there you have it right here. coming up, does the tea party play an effective role in this year's election. that's ahead. ♪

♪ >> welcome back, everybody. less than three weeks since
11:17pm
the election and it's divide not between democrats and republicans, however, between the conservatives, tea party types and some call establishment. peggy noonan, once again, take a listen. >> i think the tea party is going to have to look at itself. the tea party style of rage is not one that wins over converts and makes people lean toward them and say i want to listen to you. >> okay, now, this is laura ingram defending the conservative wing of the party. >> the work of the tea party folks and the energy that they brought to the fore, republicans would be in a disaster right now. >> and you wonder why three million fewer republicans showed up for the voting booths this election cycle, kimberly. >> yeah, it bothers me, i sit outside for two hours in new york where i knew my water down the drain, why didn't people come out.
11:18pm
they were weren't impassioned enough for mitt romney and didn't know his bio and keep prom king and see if he goes center like bob said. >> can these two wings of the party find the middle ground? >> i don't think so. i don't think it necessarily has to be a middle ground, but basic principles to agree on. i like the big ten thing and there are variations of the tea party since 1776. you look at the election when ross perot began and the government spending, it wasn't so much about social issues at the time. so i think there are ways and we have better candidates and that's across the board. >> you go back it barry goldwater versus nelson rockefeller, versus the conservatives since 1964. >> very interesting. >> it's always been somebody who steps forward to take the mantle of the big 10 and ronald reagan being the classic examples. you don't have to be a pragmatic political force, that's the difference, it
11:19pm
takes a voice to make that clear. you can't have all of these republican districts to negotiate and you need somebody and the problem is you don't need-- >> and right, how did they coalesced, the left did. >> around barack obama. >> and amazing, too, because as bob knows better than anyone, the presidential campaign they help out with the candidates and listen, we have he got focus on this guy elected and pretty much on your own and i think they were somewhat, in my opinion, somewhat in awe of barack obama what he's done at such a young age, never really one of the guys who's been there for 40 years and decided to run like senator dole and senator mccain. but i was pretty much in awe in the mid term elections on what the tea party did. i've never seen anything like it. >> even in this election, the tea party the down tick-- >> the down tick, let's remember, twice as many people, in 2010 where they had an impact and i don't take away from their emotional,
11:20pm
grabbing hold of the fiscal issue, but it does have a problem because there's not a social won attached to that. beyond that, i think that the tea party represents to me the goldwater act of '64 and somehow they got together and richard nixon pulled them together, i don't know howment do you know what more than anything else, a period of time for three weeks thought obama was going lose, lose the senate and the house was going to be republican and scared the heck out of all of us and that was a period when all of a sudden they said, wait a minute, we could have two more people like alito on the supreme court. >> and i think power is a very important thing and unseating an incumbent is hard, we usually give our presidents a second chance. but his shot or fair shot and fair share was persuasive, but it could have been met with fair shot and fair share, the government the way it's going is holding you back and the reason you consider yourself
11:21pm
lower middle class, you can't get ahead because the government is holding you back. >> and that's the rhetoric. >> without a couple of major league flubs over the last two election cycles, the senate very well could be republican and there are a lot of tea party people who did win senate seats. >> absolutely. they've been a commendable force, in terms of motivation, momentum, raising money and get out the vote and they have been very good. and they're doing better in many respects than the rest of the republicans. >> and that's the fact that the tea party candidates should have won and-- >> there's a couple of them that shouldn't have been put through, okay? >> let's not take anything away from obama's organizational skills in the campaign. >> and i understand that. >> here is the-- the charge of the senate and-- >> they should have taken the senate. >> what i said earlier in the show, if the tea party stuck with their original plan of fiscal conservative values, the senate would likely be
11:22pm
republican, because these two geniuses this year, who decided to go on and on, and talk about rape-- don't ever mention female body parts if you're republican. >> and what about in nevada and delaware. >> and-- >> and colorado and those are four that should have gone republican. >> correct yourself. if you're a republican and a gynecologist, you should mention female parts. and two number, have a screening process, better than a great guy. put them through a presidential boot camp and when they've talked about rape and abortion and it's unbelievable how inexperienced they looked to handle a question. >> and maybe get a party platform that doesn't make it so absolute on abortion, got to leave it there. >> got it leave it there. >> and thanksgiving is over, christmas is next and black friday arrived. how to survive the shopping
